The Internet’s Little Shithead: Skatoulaki/Skatoolaki

I know this is a bit premature, and I really should wait until everything is done and in place - but I'm too excited! I finally have my own little space on the web! That's right, last night I became the proud owner of skatoolaki.com (and also skatoulaki.com b/c I couldn't decide on which spelling I wanted and, really, the beer made me do it). I'm in the process of moving my many sites & things over - so things are a bit messy over there if you happen by to check it out. I'll let you know when it's done, but I just couldn't keep it to myself for that long!

Why skatoolaki, or even skatoulaki, for that matter? Well years ago I found the name "Skatoulaki" in one of my two "writer's bibles" (these being Roget's Super Theasuarus and Phoenix McFarland's The Complete Book of Magical Names - no writer should be without these). According to McFarland, "skatoulaki" is Greek for, seriously, "little shithead".

"Shithead" is, to me, a term of endearment - sort of in the vein of "you loveable, goofy oaf". It's someone who's inherently good but also naughty in a sly & sneaky sort of way. Don't ask me how 'shithead' came to mean this to me exactly, but it did. So ever since I saw that name, one of the online moniker's I've used is "skatoulaki", because it's kind of cool. If ever I couldn't use it b/c it was already taken, I'd change the spelling to "skatoolaki". In fact, if you do a Google search for 'skatoolaki', everything that comes up is my stuff. So both names/words were kind of mine - hence they both became the "address" of my webspace. I am the "little shithead" of the Internet. Er, I suppose that's something to be proud of... *scratches head*

I'm sure all of you found that extremely stimulating.

It's been a weird day - I spent most of it with my dearest friend & soulmate, tried to reconcile some things with someone I am obviously no longer friends with who all of a sudden got really creepy on me, and am about to spend the rest of the evening with my bestest friend since Kindergarten. All when all I wanted to do was be left alone to work on uploading everything to my new webspace. Well, that's become the story of my life lately - no me-time.

Still, it will be a nice evening. Baret's about to run out and fetch somy yummy Hooters' wings and curley fries for us to munch on, and no matter what else is going on in life I have the ultimate and ever-so-rewarding satisfaction of knowing that today is the first LSU game, and it does not affect me in any way whatsoever. (In case you don't remember, I used to live, essentially, right next door to LSU and game days equaled hell on earth - see last year's post on the first game of the season for reference).

Company's here. 'Til later...this 'little shithead' is signing out..

    particularly fantastic read!! I definitely savored every bit of it and I have you
    book-marked to check out new things in your blog.

    May I simply just say what a comfort to find somebody that genuinely understands what they're talking about on the net.
    You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people have to read this and understand
    this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren't more popular since you most certainly possess
    the gift.

    Excellent post. I definitely love this site. Keep it
    up!

    It’s nearly impossible to find knowledgeable people for this topic,
    but you sound like you know what you’re talking about!
    Thanks

    You ought to take part in a contest for one of the best blogs on the internet.
    I am going to recommend this website!

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I believe that you need to publish more on this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but
    generally people don't speak about such subjects. To the next!
    Many thanks!!

    Hey there! I simply would like to give you a big thumbs
    up for the great information you have got right here on this post.
    I'll be coming back to your site for more soon.

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me
    when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

    The very next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does
    not fail me just as much as this one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I
    actually believed you would have something interesting to talk about.
    All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you could possibly fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.

    Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this
    site needs a great deal more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read
    more, thanks for the information!

    You are so cool! I do not think I've truly read a single thing like that
    before. So wonderful to find another person with genuine thoughts on this issue.

    Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This site is one
    thing that is required on the web, someone with a little originality!

    I love reading through an article that can make men and women think.
    Also, many thanks for permitting me to comment!

    This is the right blog for everyone who wants to find out about this topic.
    You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need
    to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject that has been written about for
    ages. Excellent stuff, just excellent!

    Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to produce a superb article… but what can I say… I put
    things off a whole lot and never manage to get nearly
    anything done.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both
    educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy I found this in my search for something relating to this.

    Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Many thanks, However I
    am experiencing troubles with your RSS. I don’t
    know why I can't subscribe to it. Is there anybody else getting similar RSS issues?
    Anyone who knows the answer will you kindly respond? Thanx!!

    An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who had been conducting a little research on this.
    And he in fact ordered me breakfast due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him...
    lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this matter here on your internet
    site.
